Rockin' at the Hop Auditions

We’re turning back the calendar to the 1950’s!  “Sincerely, “Peggy Sue,” a “Teenager in Love,” “Where the Boys are,” “Bye, Bye Love,” Sh-Boom,” “Earth Angel.”  This Hit Parade of titles sets our feet to rockin’ ‘n’ a-rollin’ back to the beginning.  The Jitter-Bug, the Stroll, and the “Slow Dance” heat up the stage this summer as Gretna Little Theatre presents Rockin’ at the Hop, a tribute to the birth of Rock and Roll.

Preliminary auditions are scheduled for Saturday, April 4, 2:00 p.m. at the Gretna Center for the Arts, 101 Main Street, Gretna.. Teenagers and twenty-somethings who appear to be teenagers, this is the showcase for you. Choose any song from the early days of rock for your audition, bring a pal to dance, and we’ll have a rockin’ good time.  Previous theatre experience NOT required.

GLT is a fully volunteer community theatre, and we need pianists of any age for rehearsals and performance this summer. If you can play a hot piano, please join us Saturday to be one of our accompanists during June and July. Performance dates are the last weekend of July.

We need instrumentalists, particularly tenor and/or alto sax and bass guitar (upright or electric).

Rockin’ at the Hop is written, directed, and choreographed by the production team of Hal & Janina Shoemaker. Music teacher Brenda Velarde is our vocal coach, and guitarist John Mirando is music arranger.
